The American Council for Capital Formation Center for Policy Research and the ClearPath Foundation hosted a May 18th forum “Direction of Energy Policy in the 115th Congress.”
The distinguished panel included Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Jay Faison, Founder and CEO ClearPath Foundation and Meera Kohler President, Alaska Village Electric Cooperative. Politico Deputy Energy Editor Nick Juliano moderated the discussion.

This includes hydroelectric power, advanced nuclear energy, energy savings through efficiency, and the development of future energy technologies through U.S.-led innovation.Click here to Read ClearPath Foundation’s Top 10 Reasons for Conservative Clean Energy
